FoodBook is back for a revamp~
I woke up one day and decided that FoodBook sounds retarded, and hence I have come up with an even more retarded name to take its place.
Omnom O’Clock is a
weekly monthlyno-scheduley review/visual recollection of whichever omnom place I happen to have visited recently. All views and opinions are 100% my own, and are not representative of …the larger population. 😀
AND SO WE BEGIN.
I Am café is located along North Bridge Road, right at the entrance of Haji Lane (yup this place still exists) and promises to bring the feel-good vibes (and bikes) of Amsterdam to the shores of sunny Singapore.
I can’t actually judge how Amsterdam-ish the place was, seeing as I have never actually been to the capital of the Netherlands, but I must say the lovely big red I Am… sign is a beautiful touch, and for that I give this café bonus points.
Comes topped with a GINORMOUS onion ring and a delicious sunny side up, with a side of fries. Didn’t try the patty for myself, but the most hilarious part was when Sharky dipped her fries into the chili sauce and went, “that is spicy!” Vi then cautiously tried the chili with the tip of her fork, and with a bemused look on her face offered,
“It’s… pretty sweet.”
For the pastas, you could choose if you wanted it cooked with Red Tomato Sauce, White Sauce, or Aglio Olio style. I really, really liked this. The cream sauce wasn’t too gao, a sin which other eateries have a habit of committing. Generous serving of turkey ham yum. I could have another now.
Unfortunately I don’t remember the price, but it was between $16 – 18. Sauce was pretty spicy, but deliiiiiicious omg. Lots of crayfish, and it also came with (in Vi’s words) “a lot of random things” like olives and cherry tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts.
I had the Virgin Mojito Mocktail Lychee, and it was really refreshing! I was slightly miffed that I couldn’t evenly mix the syrup as there was a lot of ice on top (OCD) but it evened itself out pretty nicely. $6.90 might be a bit pricey, but for a mocktail it was pretty delicious.
Price ~$20 and up (main, drink)
